WHA’s Stars of the week

Quebec City certainly does seem to appeal to Marc Tardif. Since coming to the Nordiques from the Michigan Stags, now the Baltimore Blades, Tardif has sparked the club to a solid hold on first place in the Canadian Division. He scored the game-winner and added two assists in 6-4 win over San Diego and had the hat trick in 10-4 loss to Houston. His point total now stands at 67 on 38 goals and 29 assists. The Racers have certainly not been living up to their name this season as they continue to stall in the Eastern Division cellar. However if 29-year-old Jim Wiste can continue his pace of the past week the Racers could be taking the checkered flag in the near future. He had a goal and two assists in 6-0 shutout against Cleveland,…

Bewildered Kessell Still Aiming For Shot With Seals

LOUISVILLE SLUGGER HOCKEY STICKS Made in Canada by HILLERICH & BRADSBY. LTD Arnold Street. Wallaceburg. Ontario Sold in U.S. and Canada LOUISVILLE SLUGGER HOCKEY STICKS Made in Canada by HILLERICH & BRADSBY. LTD Arnold Street. Wallaceburg. Ontario Sold in U.S. and Canada NEW HAVEN— Rick Kessell says he’d rather set up a goal than score one. But he’ll have to admit there’s one goal he’s after-another chance to play with the California Seals of the National Hockey League. Considering the seeming lack of rapport between Kessell and the Seals, that comes as somewhat of a surprise. After spending all of last season with the Seals, he isn’t even with their farm club in Salt Lake City now. He’s on loan to the New Haven Nighthawks of the American Hockey League. And the Nighthawks are thankful he’s here. If…

Gilbert, Vickers Put Teeth In New York Offense

NEW YORK— “Rocky’s pass was right on the money”, said Steve Vickers. “All had to do was put it in the net.” Vickers, the Rangers All Star left wing was talking about a goalmouth transfer that | Gilbert had given i him during the course of a 4-4 tie with the Califormia Seals. Earlier in the same ga-. me Gilbert had set up Jean Ratelie with another pass in the slot during a power-play situation. And he had scored himself on a rising shot from the left faceoff circle which eluded the talented young Seal netminder Gilles Meloche. “Gilbert is playing better that ever,” says Emile Francis, the New York general manager-coach. “He is a better checker today than he was ten years ago. He goes into the corners better—and varies his play…

Canucks, Red Wings Keep Fans In A Tizzy

VANCOUVER— How about this for wild finishes! On Feb. 14 the Detroit Red Wings were playing the Canucks in Vancouver. At 14:14 of the third period, Danny Grant scored his third goal of the game to send the Wings ahead 4-3. The Canucks then bounced back with goals from Ab MeMarco and Dennis Ververgaert to go ahead 5-4. That’s how the game ended, but for 15,570 fans at the Pacific Coliseum the excitement was far from over. With 51 seconds remaining, Vancouver defenseman Bob Dailey drew a high sticking penalty. Canocks’ forward Paulin Bordeleau demonstrated his disapproval of the call by throwing his glove at referee Ron Wicks. Wicks promptly assessed a bench penalty, leaving the Canucks now two men short. Bordeleau was then tardy in reporting to the penalty box, prompting Wicks to…
